They are not so young as they once were, our brothers. But really, have they changed all that much?
Jon - I remember him showing me how to draw stick figures the night before kindergarten because I was afraid the other kids would laugh at me for not knowing how to draw people. That was unusual though. He was more likely to make a horrendous face so I would laugh and squirt food at the dinner table when Dad demanded Peace and Quiet.
Chris - Kit then - I have an indelible memory of him, hunched over a textbook at a desk in his room, black glasses practically steaming up from thinking so hard, kleenex screwed into his nostrils because of a dripping nose from allergies, and out of the silence a sudden, loud, frustated utterance......"Suck a HOT NUT!" Then nothing more, while he continued his furious work. He must have been doing calculus. And who could forget the Dog Dance?
Happy Birthday Chris, Oct. 9
Happy Birthday Jon, Oct. 16
